Veteran business owners play a significant role in the US economy.

In 2016, the US Census Bureau reported that veterans own a whopping 7.5% of small businesses in the US – that’s 405,235 businesses out of 5.4 million nationwide! The best part is that not only do these brave entrepreneurs have an incredible drive to pursue their dreams, but there are also dozens of local, state and federal programs to help them do it. SCORE  has compiled resources that will help veterans start or grow their businesses.
